    Hi folks - just wondering what the community thinks of purchasing an extended warranty for these cars? Usually I'm not a big believer in these but since this vehicle breaks new ground with this engine, I wonder how it will hold up a few years out. Also, what are your opinions on a wheel warranty (which also covers scuffs etc - even if self-inflicted)? I hear the bronze monkey wheels cost $3k apiece to replace?

    Thanks
    Peter

    i did it- both and Im happy about it. My cars been in the shop for 3 days while they sort out my imbalance issue. Because of the extended warranty dodge gave me a new cherokee to drive as a loaner. that would have cost me over $100 to rent so its starting to pay off.

    Plus my tire/wheel warranty covers cosmetic damage and road hazards for 5 years or something. Its well worth it in my opinion.

    The one I'm looking at has a $1500/YR limit on the wheel service contract portion. Read closely before buying.

    Just curious... I never heard of the wheel warranty? Does the car come standard with a base wheel warranty or is this strictly covered by the purchase of an extended warranty? Ya learn something new everyday!

    Manufacturer defects are covered under the 3/36 warranty. The service contract includes damage to the wheel/tire due to road hazard. Your vehicle insurance likely covers the same road hazard for the wheels but it is considered a collision in my state.

    Do a google for Chrysler service contracts or warranty and you should get several options to buy.

    I searched dodge extended warranties and got nothing, but I will try your keywords.

    I was offered none of these lol. It sounds like you all are getting them from all over considering how different they have been. I just need a starting point.
